Politico: Las Vegas Sun owners host Obama

Who says St. Jeter can’t move left?

It’s not the first time Obama and [Las Vegas Sun publisher] Greenspun have hung out. Obama kicked off the fundraiser recalling a trip to Nevada last November when he and Greenspun golfed with former Yankees great Derek Jeter.

“He and Derek Jeter stole money from me at Shadow Creek,” Obama said of Greenspun, referring to the course in North Las Vegas. “It was clearly a set up, because when we got to the practice range, he was shanking balls everywhere. I said, ‘You play golf Derek?’ And he said, ‘I just started two weeks ago.’”

They gave Jeter 30 strokes, Obama said, but he realized that was a mistake as soon as they were on the first hole. Jeter crushed him, he said.

“We had to take a picture of me handing Derek Jeter money at the end of the game. Despite that, Brian is a great friend.”
